"All Americans, not just social conservatives, are 'values' voters. We have different values, that's all. Some of us rank values like personal freedom, a clean environment and economic fairness so highly that we're willing to give up some of what we have to promote them. Other people see those values as unimportant or even harmful. But they're willing to sacrifice for their opposing principles of traditional piety, free markets and personal security."

Wait. They're throwing out the conviction of Andrea Yates, *not because* a prosecution witness referenced an episode of Law & Order, but because he referenced a *fake* episode of Law & Order?!

I weep for the entire justice system in our nation.
